My Suzi 413 Samurai LWB has developed a death wobble over time and despite balancing tyres, rotating wheels, changing wheels, adjusting and tightening steering and changing the steering damper, it has not improved. The shake is violent and starts at about 45-50mph. Its not warped brake discs or worn track rod end balljoints either.  A mechanic friend of mine doesn't think its wheel bearings as he can't feel any wear but I'm wondering if thats the problem all the same, OR could it be worn wheel bearings on the back axel. Any ideas, sugestions or comments would be welcome as I'm going to end up with a huge dentist bill from all the fillings that are being shaken loose !!!! Smile

well this happened to my previous samurai when i had lock right lockers installed in it but mine is a SWB
you should also consider your rear propeller shaft and your transmission or gearbox mountings. get someone to check those out.
bearings ususally make a deep scratching sound when you move unless your sammy is an open roof might be hard to hear though.

enjoy! Very Happy  Smile
